With the debauchery of Fat Tuesday behind us, now is the time for Catholics to reflect on Christ's example, and to reflect on living a better, more Christlike life.
Yes, I know. I'm absolutely proselytizing. It's just that Lent is very pensive time for me.
So what did I give up for Lent, you might ask? Those who know me well will snicker with sheer mirth:
Relax, I don't generally patronize Starbucks - I'm a CC's kind of gal. But I did give up coffee for Lent - that's going to be a tough one for me.
The irony is that right as I left my house tonight for mass, a UPS driver hefted a box of Gevalia at me.
This is going to be a long 40 days.
